Geometry - Polygons

In geometry a polygon is
traditionally a plane figure that is bounded by a closed path or circuit, composed of a finite sequence of
straight line segments (i.e., by a closed polygonal chain). These segments are called its edges or sides, and the
points where two edges meet are the polygon's vertices or corners. The interior of the polygon is sometimes called
its body. A polygon is a 2-dimensional example of the more general polytope in any number of dimensions.

The word "polygon" derives from the Greek πολύς ("many") and γωνία (gōnia), meaning "knee" or "angle". Today
a polygon is more usually understood in terms of sides. - Wikipedia

diagonals n= number of sides θ = one of the vertex angles
